The NEC Electronics PCI Express to PCI-X bridge and PCI Express switch application-specific standard products (ASSPs) have passed the PCI-SIG compliance program test hosted at the Plugfest event in December 2004.

NEC Electronics America Inc. says the products are now included on the PCI Express Integrators List, part of the PCI-SIG Compliance program, which offers the latest in PCI device testing and enables companies to maximize interoperability and conform to current industry standards. The integrator's list features products from member companies that both meet PCI Express specifications and demonstrate interoperability with a variety of platforms and form factors.

NEC Electronics bridge and switch ASSPs were introduced in September 2003. Manufactured in NEC Electronics' 0.15?m process technology, the PCI Express ASSPs provide solutions to high-speed interface technologies for use in servers, workstations and other storage- and network-related applications. The NEC Electronics PCI Express to PCI-X bridge ASSP (part number uPD720400) enables customers to use the PCI Express and PCI-X or PCI standards in new product designs. The bridge ASSP supports one x8 PCI Express upstream port and has two domains of PCI or PCI-X. The two downstream ports operate in 133MHz PCI-X and 64MHz 64bit PCI bus modes. The switch ASSP (part number uPD720401) supports two x8 PCI Express lanes and four x4 PCI Express lanes, all of which can be configured as either downstream or upstream ports.
